Frustrated. Sweet Tea?

Recommended Posts

I've been Gluten-free for over a year now, and getting it mostly figured out. I've had a few gluten-incidents, and seem to have a pretty distinct reaction.

I eat out fairly often, and either am pretty lucky about CC, or am not super sensitive. Most of my reactions I've been able to traceback to a specific mistake.

My wife and I were in TX for a days last weekend, and she wanted ribs. WE went to County Line BBQ on the riverwalk in San Antonio, and I asked the waitstaff. Not really getting a good response, I decided to just not order anything to eat, but order a sweet tea (ice tea, sweetened).

Within 20-30 minutes, I was feeling like crap. 2 days later, I'm still dragging. WTH? Could it really be CC, but I eat out all the time? What would it be in Sweet Tea?

I found this link on the forum, but was curious if anyone else has had this issue? I've had hot barley tea (before diagnosis) , any chance something like that would be in a tea? I like tea, but I'll be worried aobut ordering it in the future.

From what I understand, they can use some form of flour so the tea does not stick together, in addition the flavoring is put on coffee with gluten of some kind, so I would not be surprised if that is what happens with tea. I have reacted to tea a number of times already.
